My last post was a month ago, when I was struggling with my back. Unfortunately in that time, we nearly lost my mum, I’ve taken on an extra job 3 days a week and my main job has become more stressful.
When my running (or my exercises for the running) were my main focus it was easy to keep on track (and indulge myself). Unfortunately, recent events above have thrown me and also, last visit to the Physio was demoralising - he advised to go back to the beginning of the programme. Before my back started to trouble me, I was about to complete Week 5 (and giddy with it 🙂)
I started my running back in August when I joined a beginners club who unfortunately rang too fast for me (worsened my plantar fasciitis(. Same thing happened with a second group I joined. Then signed up for C25K and thought WOW! This is achievable! Actually felt nothing could stop me this time. Had the bit between my teeth and loving it.
Over the last few weeks though,my mood has dropped and I’ve lost that determination. Even purchasing my first pair of proper running shoes hasn’t motivated me. I’ve done the Week 1 Run twice in the last 3 weeks. That’s all. Even stopped doing my Physio exercises and pilates at home.
Would really appreciate anything you can throw at me to get me out there again.
Thank you lovely people 🙂
